THE LAB,OR VOT'EIR "Despite the yelling of the copitclists about the prosperity which is mckinqworkers into middle class voters, the Labor vote during .this prosperity has never been less than 43 %. 'These facts/ concludes Mr. Williams, 'reduce: the usual analysis to' nonsense.' New houses and washing mochines do not make the Labor voter a Conservative voter." WORKERS IN A REVOLUTI,ON

"What happens in a revolution is that the closs for the first time finds itself free to )hink its own thoughts and give some concrete form to its own experience acc.umulated over the generations. Whenever a revolutionary closs moves, it establishes a stage for the intenational movement." THE A,MERICAN WORKERS

~

1'1 have to shawl and I will, that M,arxism and
its expectation of the independent and creative action of the working class is not mere wishing or speculation or psychology but a scientific process. Without this scientific process you either ignore the American workers or indulge in wild and essentially subjective speculations."

From Marxism and the Inte11lect"als
